Arsenal eye move for 22 year-old Ligue 1 midfielder

Arsenal are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Cheick Doucoure from Lens this summer.

The Gunners are believed to be preparing for another summer of spending, with a striker, a forward and a central midfielder believed to be amongst their priorities at present.

With a return to European football having been earned through our fifth placed finish in the Premier League, we are expected to bolster our options ahead of the new campaign whether we offload some of our current stars or not, and the midfield did become a problem area during our most recent campaign.

Doucoure could well be the guy to come in and strengthen our options for the new season according to the Mirror, with the midfielder believed to have been unhappy to have seen his club block his move to Tottenham 12 months ago before another impressive season in France.

It would be interesting to see if he could earn a regular starting role in our side if he does move, as he could well be the ideal partner for Thomas Partey through the middle. He isn’t one to soak up the spotlight, but he is happy do those unappreciated jobs well, and that allows others to be more exuberant.

Should an upgrade to Xhaka be high on our radar this summer? What other roles should be high on our wishlist along with a forward (or two)?

  1. If we getting Cheick Doucoure , let’s do fast, he seems to be a strong box to box midfielder.
    I strongly believe he’ll be a massive upgrade, it all depends on Edu and Arteta.

  2. “Should an upgrade to XHAKA be on our radar” PATRICK ASKS !

    Well obviously not, as this world class player has been by far our best player for the last six years and every point we ever get is entirely down to his magnificent presence. His level headedness, speed and mobility are magnificent!
    THATS how to write sarcasm, my fellow Gooners!
